Poor Man's Whiskey is a hot local band that plays "acoustic music, with a rock-n-roll attitude, that fuses bluegrass, blues, reggae folk and jazz." Music starts at 11:30.

A free competition, open to all riders, that should make for interesting spectating. Featured events include: Top Fuel Bike Drag Race; Slow Race; Apache Pick-up; Bike Bunny Hop; Free-style Tricks; Sign-ups at noon, and events start at 2pm.

How can you tell if a new bike is right for you testing it in a parking lot? You can't. Here is your chance to ride the latest high end dualies, provided by Rocky Mtn, and Marin Mtn Bikes, on the trails in the park. Free demos all day.
